Introduced on Steam in 2019, Fade Out marked PlaySys' exploration into the realm of single-player escape room experiences, created for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The primary objective of the game was to transport the escape room ambiance directly into the player's living space. Progressing through a succession of riddles, each room underwent transformative changes, constituting incremental steps in the player's gameplay. Notably absent were zombies or monsters, replaced instead by an unsettling sensation of an impending presence concealed in the shadows.
Accompanied by the mysterious and haunting notes of the score, composed by the Finnish composer Kimmo Kuokkala, players found themselves in solitary contemplation, armed with only a handful of clues to decipher the puzzles and navigate their way out of the rooms. Crafted by a small and culturally diverse team comprising 10 individuals from five different countries, the game entertained players from its initial release until its retirement. The conclusion of this chapter was officially announced in this Steam post by the developers in 2023.
